Johnny Gaudreau reportedly made an extra $212,500 for participating in the All-Star Game.
Gaudreau was always selected to participate in the skills competition, but he initially wasn't going to play in the game. When Sidney Crosby pulled out, creating a vacancy, there were initial reports that he would play, but it was soon announced that the NHL would simply leave Crosby's spot unfilled. Then the NHL later decided to let Gaudreau play after all. Gaudreau thinks the act of playing in the All-Star Game itself, as opposed to being selected for the skills competition, is what qualified him for the bonus, but he wasn't really sure because he hadn't asked his agent since he found out he was playing.

Johnny Gaudreau scored twice to help Calgary get past Buffalo 4-1 on Tuesday.

"Johnny Hockey" picked up right where he left off before the All-Star break-piling up points. He now has four points in his last three games and 37 total in 47 games played. The All-Star is as good as advertised. Josh Jooris picked up his fourth game winning goal of the year which leads all Flames players this season. Joe Colborne added the other goal for Calgary.

Johnny Gaudreau got an opportunity to play on a line with fellow rookie Filip Forsberg during the All-Star Game.

Gaudreau assisted on both of Forsberg's goals. The two are among the frontrunners to win the Calder Trophy this season. "Yeah, he's a skilled hockey player," Gaudreau said of Forsberg. "It was a lot of fun playing with him and getting a chance to play with a whole bunch of other guys. I like how they rotated a few guys on our line, so us young guys got to play with a lot of different people."

Johnny Gaudreau will play in the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday.

There were initially some reports that he was included as an injury replacement for Sidney Crosby, then he was out, but he’s officially in now, which makes sense because Team Toews would’ve been playing the game a man short. Gaudreau is also participating in the breakaway challenge during the skills competition on Saturday. Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points this season.

Johnny Gaudreau said that being a healthy scratch early in the season worked.

Gaudreau played in the first five games of the season but was struggling as he had yet to get a shot on net when coach Bob Hartley decided to sit him in the press box. "That was pretty eye-opening for me," Gaudreau said. "I think I was pretty nervous (about) getting sent down (to the minors). I went (five) games without a point or without producing offensively. I came back and was pretty concerned about getting sent down. Ever since that game, I kind of just took off from there." He certainly has as Gaudreau has 13 goals and 35 points with 97 shots on goal in the 41 games since the benching.

Johnny Gaudreau won't play in the All-Star Game after all.

Johnny Gaudreau is attempting to trademark his nickname, Johnny Hockey.

Agent Lewis Gross and his client, Gaudreau, want some control over what was being sold with his nickname on it to prevent derogatory items from being associated with Gaudreau. The story has taken off though, to the surprise of Gaudreau and Gross. "More than anything (Gaudreau) was just embarrassed by all the attention it got," Flames assistant GM Craig Conroy said. "He just wanted to keep it low key and pretend it didn't even happen. I said, 'Well, it did happen, so now just deal with it.'"

Johnny Gaudreau has been selected as the NHL's rookie of the month.

Gaudreau had eight goals and 13 points in 14 games to lead all rookies in December. Calder Trophy favorite Filip Forsberg had another big month though with four goals and 12 points in 13 contests.

Johnny Gaudreau has been named the NHL's first star of the week.

Gaudreau scored five goals in just two games, including a hat trick on Monday. He's very much in the race for the Calder Trophy with 12 goals and 29 points in 36 contests, although he'll have a tough time winning it over Filip Forsberg.

Coach Bob Hartley says that Johnny Gaudreau reminds him of Chris Drury.

That's not a bad comparison as Drury had a very good NHL career until degeneration in his left knee ended his career. "You talk to Johnny, you talk to Chris Drury, you see the spark in their eyes," Hartley said. "They want to do well and they love to be in the clutch. A clutch situation, it seems they find a way to rise to the occasion. Personality-wise, they look alike a lot." Gaudreau has 12 goals and 29 points this season and is likely the second best rookie in the NHL behind Filip Forsberg.
